This is a cool app. When i'm buying online I always us the Google Products (aka Froogle) service to do price comparisons, and this application lets you do it 'in the field'. When you're in a store, scan a barcode or cover to get local and online prices and product details. This application is very similar to Shopsavvy, although I opted to include shopper as it includes functionality for scanning covers and most importantly has a funky green horizontal line when you're barcode scanning.
Beware, people who see you using this in a store will think you're strange, heh...
